Attended by aid to cause of delusion and wry

glory of life, momentarily spared, but not saved,

this is when the psycho-babble of sycophants is

declared to sustain this life but it is to the paved

road so wide as to lure any and all concerned so…

with life at all, not even considering one’s soul,

this is where the path… the way to God then by-

passed en mass, Jesus the Hebrew God, no foal

for a war horse… not to deceive the masses as

some would be the god of all I see, to perceive…

and tell more lies in the end than in the garden

with one, the fall, no faith came for one to believe,

this then is the relief of belief without measure, to

perceive man as a fool for virtue or vice, so wrong,

this is to think there is a field beyond this life… one

we can meet to discuss each mortal idea so long.

 

 

Some very noteworthy Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes… listed below and sourced.

 

“I remarked especially the mimetic habit with Nature, on new instruments, hums her old tunes, making night to mimic day, and chemistry to ape vegetation.”

“The senses interfere everywhere and mix their own structure with all they report of.”

“We fancy that our civilization has got on far, but we still come back to our primers.”

“We live by our imaginations, by our admirations, by our sentiments, the child walks amid heaps of illusions, which he does not like to have disturbed.”

“The intellect is stimulated by the statement of truth in a trope, and the will by clothing the laws of life in illusions.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson”, 568 pages Published 1920 by Black’s Readers Service Company (first published in 1840), New York, N.Y., quotes from abstracts of: Essays, Illusions, p.416- 422 respectively.

 

Something about old books, isn’t there?

 

P.S. This embodiment is dedicated to the memory of Philip Roth (March 19, 1933- May 22, 2018), an American novelist, and the passion for writing… inspired by notables of literature such as he was. Realizing Roth to receive the 2001 Franz Kafka Prize… most noteworthy by itself. May your own inkwell never dry!
